Please read the entire page before beginning the application process.
If you are interested in working on a nanoHUB project in SURF, you will need to follow the instructions below. Be sure you talk about specific NCN projects directly on your SURF application, using the text box for projects that most interest you.
- Carefully read the NCN project descriptions and select which project(s) you are most interested in and qualified for. It pays to do a little homework to prepare your application.
- Select the Network for Computational Nanotechnology (NCN) / nanoHUB as one of your top choices.
- In the text box for Essay #2, where you describe your specific research interests, qualifications, and relevant experience, you may discuss up to three NCN projects that most interest you. Please rank your NCN project choices in order of interest. For each project, specify the last name of the faculty advisor, the project, why you are interested in the project, and how you meet the required skill and coursework requirements.
DO NOT enter any text in the area titled "Faculty Member and Research Project", even if you have already identified a Purdue faculty member who has agreed to work with you if accepted into SURF.
Note: You will be able to apply to SURF online beginning January 8, 2018.
